What would you want to know?

Too often Peter is called to quote on someones pride and joy only to find that the small repair he has been called to look at has revealed an underlying issue from earlier in the vehicles life. Often only 2 or 3 years old, a small bumper scuff, when looked at with a professional eye, will show that a much larger repair has taken place in the past.

A 4 year old Silver Ford Fiesta with a front bumper scuff has clearly suffered an impact in the past that has distorted the bumper so that it did not fit correctly on one side and had some of the fixing clips missing. The front edge of the bonnet has a small crease and there is an excess of small stone chips suggesting a quick ‘re-spray’ to help hide the damage.

Odd numberplates, a main dealer on the back and a plain one on the front should be a hint, but the lady who owns the car has not picked up on any of the hints.

Once the new owner has scuffed the bumper, the seller is clearly going to claim the underlying damage is due to their poor driving and that the car was ‘perfect’ when it left them.

Should Peter advise the new owner, or let them continue in ignorance of their cars history?
